Attivo Networks Wins 2016 Cyber Defense Magazine’s Next Gen Deception Based Security Solution Award

Award Recognizes Company’s Innovation In Using Deception for Cyber Security Defense

Fremont, CA., February 29, 2016— Attivo Networks®, the leader in deception for cyber security threat detection, today announced that Cyber Defense Magazine, the industry’s leading electronic information security magazine and media partner of the RSA® Conference 2016, has been named winner of the Next Gen Deception Based Security Solution award. The selection was made after many months of review and judging by leading independent information security experts and the award will be made during this week’s RSA conference.

“We’re thrilled to recognize next-generation innovation in the information security marketplace and that’s why Attivo Networks has earned this award from Cyber Defense Magazine. Some of the best INFOSEC defenses comes from these kinds of forward thinking players who think outside of the box,” said Pierluigi Paganini, Editor-In-Chief, Cyber Defense Magazine.

Attivo Networks provides real-time visibility and detection of inside-the-network threats that have bypassed security prevention systems. The company’s dynamic deception platform has been deployed in numerous Fortune 500 companies and is recognized as the most comprehensive solution on the market. Attivo has the ability to create a deception matrix and traps across all segments of an organization’s network, data center, cloud, and Industrial Control System (SCADA) environments. The company’s patented threat detection technology is based on high-interaction engagement servers, server and endpoint decoys, and an extensive suite of deception lures. It uses real operating systems, applications, and other advanced deception techniques to create an environment that is indistinguishable from an organization’s real assets. The BOTsink® analysis engine plays a critical role in the solution and takes the detected attack, analyzes the attack, and automatically or on demand produces detailed alerts and reports that enable the prompt blocking and quarantining of infected systems.

“First, we are extremely pleased that the deception based security category is receiving national attention through award categories like this,” comments Tushar Kothari, CEO of Attivo Networks. “And, of course, we are very excited that we are the winner in this prestigious competition. We have led the innovation in deception detection by expanding our capabilities and features based on the increasing complex requirements of our global customers. Breaches are growing rapidly and, with ever evolving types of threats, we realize that continuing to provide next generation solutions that efficiently reduce the time to detection and speed up the time to remediation are critical to our customers success and to the defense of their most valued assets.”
